Internews’ Earth Journalism Network (EJN) is seeking to boost content production and distribution of information to build awareness about renewable energy in India, focusing on Bihar, Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, and Uttar Pradesh.

EJN will support the production of in-depth content on the subject, aiming to improve access to quality information and raise awareness among policymakers, project developers, investors, and observers.

As noted above, EJN welcomes proposals that focus on policy, financing, payment, and infrastructure hurdles — and effective strategies and solutions to overcome them.

The organisation aims to support the development, production, and publication of reports that raise awareness about the status of the renewable energy sector and strategies to ensure its growth in India, especially in Bihar, Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, and Uttar Pradesh.

Proposals that focus on topics that have not been widely covered are preferred. Issues that have already received a lot of coverage or don’t provide unique angles to challenges are less likely to be selected.
